On Tuesday, we talked about support networks and who you might ask to serve as your recommender or reference. Today, we ask you to do something about it! This week’s mission (should you choose to accept it), is to reach out to someone (today!) in your support network who could be your recommender. If you are currently applying to an opportunity, contact someone so that they can get started on your recommendation; if you aren’t applying to anything right now, contact someone to stay on their radar. Whether it’s in person, by phone or via email (no texting, please!), connecting with someone who might serve as your recommender is a crucial step in any application process.
